RIP Wayne Dyer

By now, you may have read that Wayne Dyer has passed away. The prolific self-help author and motivational speaker died at his home in Hawaii. He was 75.

Dyer wrote dozens of books and multiple New York Times bestsellers on topics like psychological self-improvement and spirituality and he was a frequent fixture on UNC-TV during our fundraisers. A quick peek at our database shows a bevy of Wayne Dyer pledge specials we’ve aired, including Excuses Begone, I Can See Clearly Now, The Power of Intention and Wishes Fulfilled, just to name a few.

Wayne Dyer has even been an in-studio guest during our pledge drives and I believe those who met him said the man you saw on the screen was the same man you met when the cameras were turned off. Working in television, I feel that’s extremely high praise.
